Yeah, of course.

And I'm working on getting that started, BTW.

There's currently a $15 off $75 eBay deal for today only until 6PM PT using code POSTECLIPSE15.

Combined with the 'buy 4, get 15% off' at Blowitoutahere there's usually some good deals to be found on boutique label horror offerings.

Thanks for the note on blowitouttahere Chad. Had seen the post on the ebay sale earlier but decided to skip it. Your mention made me scramble to find some slightly boutique horror after I got home from work. Had no time to research or check my collection, so hopefully these are good deals and not repeats.

Drive-In Delirium 70s and 80s - ~$10
Sennentunthschi: Curse of the Alps - ~$11
Slaughterhouse 30th Anniversary - ~$11
Dorm that Dripped Blood - ~$12
Beware the Blob - ~$13
Murder Weapon & Deadly Embrace - ~$13

I'm thinking of getting the rest of the Universal Monsters Legacy Collections that I don't have. I only need the Dracula, Invisible Man, and Mummy sets.

The building of the 31 Film Subset just kicked off in the pre-challenge thread.

And we still need 6 more volunteers.

The Killing of America is currently $8.59 at Amazon. Can't beat 71% off for a Severin title.

Re: 100 Movies. 31 Days. The 13th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/

Hi-Def Ninja put up 3 special editions of the upcoming Synapse Suspiria blu-ray for pre-order yesterday. The one with artwork from Matt Ryan Tobin is sold out, but the other 2 are still available. Each edition is limited to 200 and they're numbered. I ordered the Dark Inker edition and it came out to about $64 with shipping, which is $14 more than the standard edition from Synapse, but I think it's well worth it, and the slipbox is nice to have for protecting the steelbook. Here's the link to order... https://shop.hidefninja.com/products...nt=40814848197

This is the edition I ordered...

Sexy but whenever I see those key words "new 4K restoration" I think to myself I'll just wait and buy the 4k version.

I would've been all over that if I didn't already order direct from Synapse.

There's an Italian 4K coming 10/11. I've heard the colors were off on the Blu-ray, so a little wary of getting that one. Looks to be the only option for the time being since Synapse said don't expect one any time soon:



I'm sure it'll look great upconverted though.

I had already purchased direct from Synapse too, but I'll just sell that one on ebay to make my money back.

You can see comparison shots of the Italian and upcoming Synapse blu-ray, and it's clear that the Synapse remaster is miles ahead of the Italian one. The Italian 4k blu-ray will use the same master as their standard blu-ray, so I wouldn't even consider getting it. With the Synapse blu-ray, you're also getting the original 4.0 English mix that was used in the '77 theatrical release.

I need some of the scariest movies ever made. Trying to do a bit of shopping and making sure I get some really good scares this year.

I want to help recommend some epic scary movies but I struggle with thinking of ones that are really tense. I tend to enjoy a lot of horror on a 'dark humor' level or appreciate the surreal qualities but not end up feeling goosebumps over them. The scariest movie, for me, I can readily think of is the original Blair Witch Project (1999).

Here's a quick 'top 10 scariest' list (in no particular order, your mileage may vary):
I Am The Ghost (twisted imagery honestly gave me a nightmare)
Grave Encounters 1 (cartoonish but I'm a sucker for abandoned buildings)
The Eye (2002)
Darling
Here Comes the Devil
Absentia
Theatre Bizzare
[Rec] 1-2 (really should be seen back to back as '1 film' for best experience)
Mischief Night
Ringu

This was the first time in years I'd seen it, but I want to say, "I love the ending of The Devil's Rejects." That is all.

Re: 100 Movies. 31 Days. The 13th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/

I am trying to remember a movie I saw several years ago but I can't remember the name.
I think it was a Japanese movie. And the main character had back pain...
Spoiler:
Turns out the ghost was literally on his back the whole time thus causing his back pain.

Sounds a lot like Shutter. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0440803/?ref_=fn_al_tt_2

Couldn't resist. Also went with the Dark Inker edition. After missing the boat on The Mad Magician Blu-ray from Twilight Time not five minutes after it sold out yesterday, I don't need another regret.

Shout Factory has a 30% off linewide 'Back to School' sale on their website, excludes some preorders and new releases ('...of the Deads').
